IN RESPONSE TO MICHAEL KINSLEY AND BILL MINNICH
His point is ‘You have to draw the line somewhere, so therefore it’s ok to draw it here, at the boarders of the United States.
Thats ridicules! You could use that argument to draw the line anywhere you darn well please!!
He invokes murderers and child molesters. Murderers and child molesters are inherently less dangerous than terrorists because terrorists are part of an on going plot, whereas the murderer and child molester acts on his or her own. The point of terror is that there is little that can be done after the fact.
It's a war guys, not a crime spree.
Bill Minnich's and Kinsley’s entire argument here is about how to best punish terrorists. Those of us who see clearly the need to stop terror are trying to prevent future terror: That’s the fundamental difference. By allowing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was cooperating while being waterboarded, and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab with his "FRUIT OF THE BOOM" underwear, to be tried in civilian courts means they get to lawyer up and get the same rights as Americans. This prevents us from garnering information to prevent future attacks!
To use the logic (or illogic) of Kinsley, if World War Two had been fought on American soil, lets say…Texas… is he arguing that every Nazi captured there would have to be given a civilian trial? You’ve got to differentiate between war and crime!!
This administration does not believe we are at war. If we found a known terrorist on the streets of Bagdad we have the right to blow him to 70 virgins but if we catch him trying to blow up a jet in America we have to give him a lawyer… That’s ridicules!!
Just because you say you have to draw a line somewhere does not mean Americans have to draw it here. That's Elitist!!
As for erring on the side of American justice, I don’t know about Kinsley or Bill Minnich or Lee Papa, but I will stand on the side of American security!!! Liberals like these guys love to feel morally superior, “Oh I feel so much better to extend rights to this guy who tried to take 280 lives on this plane.” And I can here Bill Minnich saying “You just want to waterboard them and get information out of them!”
I’m smarter then you limp wristed dopes. I’ll waterboard them all the live long day if it means I save one American. I’ll waterboard them and find out whats going on in Yemen and I’ll go over there and kill whoever they say is plotting against America. You liberals might say you’re better than me and that I'm sick and wrong and inhuman. Well I just saved American lives you panty-wasted milk-toast fool.
And yes, I’d do it even if it means saving you Cynical Bill, or saving you Diorreah, or you Michael Kinsley.
You know why? I’ll tell you why.
Because that’s what real Americans do!!
